Reviews - What do customers think about Suddenly Theyre 13?
Eye-opening resource Aug 13, 2004
I've used this book many times in helping parents of adolescents and teenagers to understand the changes they see in their children and stepchildren. The Arps know their subject well and have done a fine job explaining it to frazzled parents who are desperately seeking help.
In fact, we've used this as a text book for some parenting classes and have received enthusiastic responses from the parents who have attended. The material is easy to read and grasp. The suggested solutions and ways to dealing with children in "the change" are helpful and easy to implement.
